Synopsis: This beautifully written, meticulously researched work is a must-read not only for Polish-Americans, but for all readers who are interested in learning about the challenges and joys of the trans-Atlantic crossing made by millions of European immigrants in the late nineteenth century.Richard and Aloysius Lutz have written a compelling tale about the hardships encountered by a group of poor Polish immigrants, viewed through the eyes of newlyweds Paul and Jadwiga Adamik. Readers are introduced to Poles and Polish folklore from several regions of then-partitioned Poland, as well as the tensions that existed between Poles and the three nations that occupied Poland in the nineteenth century: Prussia, Russia, and Austria.This work of historical fiction will resonate with readers whose ancestors, three or four generations ago, made the same difficult decision to uproot their families from their familiar surroundings in Europe in order to secure a better life in America. Their stories about their emigration from the Old World, often carefully passed down from generation to generation, have been woven into the fabric of Jadwiga's Crossing.For many Americans today, the story of Paul and Jadwiga Adamik's crossing offers a fresh look at the courage of, and sacrifices made by, their grandparents and great-grandparents over 140 years ago. Jadwiga's Crossing offers masterful storytelling-a riveting journey into the past.Dr. Deborah Anders SilvermanAuthor, Polish-American FolkloreWebsite: JadwigasCrossing.com

About the Author: Aloysius A. Lutz grew up in a Polish home, in a Polish neighborhood of Dunkirk, New York, near the shores of Lake Erie. One of eight children, he was born in the early years of the 20th Century and grew up hearing stories of his grandparents? immigration to America. During the Great Depression, he promoted amateur boxing in Dunkirk, and later worked in Dunkirk industries, including the Allegheny-Ludlum Steel Corporation. He began work on Jadwiga?s Crossing in the 1950?s, but died in 1966 before completing it.Born in 1903, Aloysius A. Lutz grew up near the shores of Lake Erie in a Polish neighborhood of Dunkirk, New York, hearing stories of his grandparents? immigration to America. Jadwiga?s Crossing was a labor of love begun in the 1940's as he retold those stories to his young son. Richard J. Lutz completed his father?s work after further research done while a Fellow in Journalism at The University of Michigan. In retirement, he edits and publishes The Main Street WIRE, the fortnightly community newspaper serving Roosevelt Island in the City of New York. Richard J. Lutz, a lifelong broadcast journalist and media specialist, is the son of Aloysius and Lena Hartlieb Lutz. He worked in commercial and public radio and television in Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin before moving to New York City as a consultant on the nexus of digital technology and mass communications. He holds degrees from The University of Michigan, where he was also a journalist in residence in 1978?79. In retirement, he edits and publishes The Main Street WIRE, the fortnightly community newspaper serving Roosevelt Island, New York City.

As though it was for her to determine this for him. So much was happening. He was forgetting his knapsack, which he was entitled to keep. And he was forgetting the other Polish sergeants-the ones he had agreed to go to town with, to the dance. Already she had him fully confused. And hadn t she mentioned America, even? What was it she said about America? So begins the adventure of Jadwiga s Crossing, a compelling story of emigrants from Poland in the period after America s great Civil War. A young girl from a Baltic fishing community, a proud soldier in service to Prussian militarism, and the love that compels him to take the gamble of a lifetime. Theirs is no simple voyage to the New World as they deal with the challenges of a mismanaged squarerigger, discord among their fellow passengers, a scarcity of food, and mounting disasters.
